The Relationship Between the Music Teacher Candidates’ Computer-Assisted Teaching Attitudes and Exam Anxiety in Computer Literacy

Ismet Arici


Today, improving instructional technologies have increased at a significant pace particularly with the introduction of computers in education. Computers have contributed greatly to every field of education. Computers have supported the preparation of powerful audio-visual materials with multiple-media features and have also empowered the education sector with the software options intended for different fields. Consequently; computer-assisted education (CAE) has come into its own.

As the use of computers has become widespread and computers have found an important place in education, attitudes about computer-assisted education have become important, as well. Particularly the empowerment of the attitudes of teacher candidates, as the educators of the future, toward computer-assisted education, is a significant gain for education.

Computer literacy lessons provided for in education faculties are significant in that they may help teacher candidates to prepare computer-assisted education materials and to use computers effectively in education process.

Finding out whether the attitudes toward computer-assisted education have positive impact on exam anxiety in computer lessons, analysing the factors which determine the attitudes, and understanding the reasons for anxiety will be useful in carrying out new researchers in order to make significant contributions to education processes.

This research included 46 teacher candidates studying Computer-Assisted Music Teaching in the Department of Music Teaching Education at Marmara University. The students completed the exam anxiety inventory and CAE attitude scale prior to administration of the computer-assisted music education exam. The results of the research indicated a significant negative relationship between the students’ CAE attitude levels and their anxiety levels. Findings of the scales showed that, CAE attitudes were high and anxiety levels were low. Findings of the study indicated that the computer education they received contributed positively to their computer experiences and their attitudes towards CAE.
